Letter: Laura Berish, Hillsboro

Editor: The attempt to normalize the selling and domestic ownership of guns by locating a gun store in a former home set amongst a neighborhood and near an elementary school is another part of the wrongheaded approach to tackling gun safety and regulation in our communities.

To insist selling coffee while waiting for your “background check” is falsely making the transaction as innocuous as a woman getting her hair coiffed and sipping a tea or coffee while her hair dries. It is just wrong.

An election is coming this November and it is past time to elect politicians like Senator Jennifer Wexton to replace the NRA-funded Representative Comstock.
We must take gun safety and regulation seriously.

    What if it’s a woman who is waiting for her background check? Is she “just wrong?”

    I’m not sure what the OP’s point is. Should gun stores be located as far away from civilization as possible?
    Also, what on earth does this have to do with the NRA, Comstock and Wexton? Only NRA and Comstock supporters buy guns and drink coffee? Does the OP seriously believe there are no Wexton voting liberals in Loudoun who also are responsible gun owners?

    The best way to teach gun safety is to expose children to guns at an early age. I bought my daughter her 1st gun when she was 12, taught her gun safety & then how to use it. Me thinks Laura just tried to use this as a promo for Wexton – like her’s or anyone elses opinion would influence how I vote.
